International Smile Power plans to brighten Tent City 4 residents’ smiles, but the nonprofit organization needs some help to do so.

Dental Day at Tent City 4, a homeless encampment, runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. International Smile plans to offer oral exams, cleanings, fillings and other services to camp residents.

Organizers need drivers to transport residents to and from Tent City 4 at Community Church of Issaquah to the Issaquah dental office. The team also needs more hygienists and dental assistants to pitch in. People interested in volunteering should email smilepower@smilepower.org.

International Smile Power delivers dental health care, supplies, education and training to underserved people in the United States and around the globe.

Tent City 4 settled in Issaquah late last month and is due to remain at the church until late January.
